Rudy Giuliani has come under fire for a deeply uncomfortable sequence in the newest Borat film, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. The sequence has been talked about to death over the last two days once critics were able to release their reviews of the film (read our review!). But now, you can watch the highly controversial sequence for yourself and make your own judgment.

Here is the scene from Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan featuring Rudy Giuliani and actress Maria Bakalova as Borat’s daughter, Tutar:

The hubbub around this sequence with Rudy Giuliani in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan has become so pronounced that actor Sacha Baron Cohen has felt the need to respond to the former New York City mayor in character as Borat Sagdiyev:

Rudy Giuliani maintains his innocence in the sequence, even though he can clearly be seen touching Maria Bakalova on her back without any provocation from the actress. However, the main point of contention in the sequence has come about regarding a moment where the former New York City mayor reaches his hands down the front of his pants. Giuliani maintains that he was tucking his shirt in. The context of the scene certainly implies something much more inappropriate.

However, there has been ample discussion about how the sequence with Rudy Giuliani and actress Maria Bakalova is being presented. An article from Slate looked at the sequence from the perspective of a film editor in an effort to break down exactly what it is the audience was seeing and how it was being presented. It is important for viewers to be reminded that they are watching a film and that standard filmmaking and editing techniques are being utilized, which means that what you are experiencing is undoubtedly manipulated.
